Photos From BUST Magazine’s 20th Anniversary Extravaganza

by Tess Duncan

We already relived our favorite parts of our big-ass BUST birthday party from last Thursday, but now we’d like to take a second and say THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH. We couldn’t have done it without all of our amazing performers, sponsors, and BUSTies who showed up to celebrate with us! We are so, so, so happy with the way the night went and we wish that night could have lasted forever and ever. The drinks, the music, the dancing, the photo booth, the stand-up, the tears, the speeches, the surprises, the cupcakes, the FREE STUFF! It was just absolutely awesome. Or, in the words of Gloria Steinem, it was “fan-fucking-tastic.”

We’d specifically like to thank a few (and by a few, I mean a LOT of) people.

We’d like to thank everyone who helped us celebrate:
Julie Klausner
